Contemporary Art Museum of the Presidio: Letter of Support

To the Presidio Trust,

I think CAMP is probably the greatest gift to the city of San Francisco that one family has ever offered. The Fishers' art is the most important private collection of modern and contemporary art in the world. Its quality, breadth and depth rivals that of most major museums. When it is completed we will be a destination city for international visitors interested in art and culture.

The proposed location at the top of the parade ground at the Main Post is befitting. We would be lucky to have Richard Gluckman's beautifully designed building as-is.

To the Presidio Trust:
I'm writing in support of the Contemporary Art Museum of the Presidio(CAMP)at the Main Post. The CAMP proposal presents a rare opportunity to simultaneously revitalize and honor one of San Francisco's most important historical landmarks. As a privately funded gift to the city, CAMP would serve as an important educational and cultural resource accessible to families, students, and residents from every part of the city and the greater Bay Area without depleting city budgets. This project is an incredibly valuable addition to the Presidio and entire SF community. Please don't deprive the city of this opportunity - if CAMP is approved, the Presidio will become an inviting place that we cherish not only for its history, but also for its future.
